The space

Retro duplex, outdoor space, very homey, very Austin. If you're looking for a new/updated space, this is not for you. The duplex is definitely clean but you will see the age. 1 private bedroom is always available, but please inquire about the entire duplex (2 bedrooms) being available as we are out of town often. The guest private room is fairly small - there is a queen bed and not much walking around space but there is room for luggage in the closet as well as hanging space in the closet. There is only 1 bathroom. There are also 2 twin size air mattresses available and a large comfortable couch.

Guest access

Outdoor space, The Whip In restaurant/bar/music venue, gas station store, and 2 restaurants are walking distance. South Congress street is a good walk uphill, but easiest is to bike or drive. Buses and bike share on South Congress. Uber/cabs/Lyft all available.

Interaction with guests

Please inquire if we will be home during the time you are traveling to Austin. We also have a medium/large dog that is very friendly, but if you have an issue with this, we can possibly make other arrangements. The queen bed is in the guest bedroom and always available, but if we're out of town, the king bed in the master bedroom will also be available. When we're out of town, the duplex can fit 1-4 people in beds, and 2 more guests on the inflatable mattresses and 1 on the couch. If we are home during your stay, we try to stay out of your way and keep things quiet for you.

Other things to note

Please take note that we have a medium/large dog that is not crated. He is very friendly, but if you have allergies or issues, please let us know so we can possibly make arrangements. If we are out of town during your stay, the dog will also not be there.

Great stay. Maria was accommodating even though I arrived late (around 10 pm) the room was clean and exactly as described in the posting. The room is cozy and comfortable and Maria provided a bath towel and a face towel. Their dog (Chuck) is adorable and lazy. He won't pay much attention to you. Overall, great stay and great value for the location. I would def go back.

The room is cozy and I loved the decor of the house. The proximity to South Congress is a big plus, I was here just one night and it was great exploring the area, have some excellent food and craft beers. The airport is also a mere 10 minute drive away; this was very convenient for me because I had to catch an early flight in the morning. Maria was away, but she was very responsive and helpful over the phone.

Maria was a great host, it was a single bedroom in the house, which we have never done before, it was not awkward at all. Clean and friendly, there was a dog there but the house did not smell of dog and it was very mild mannered and quiet. We did not hang out at the house but I'm sure it would have been cool if we had. The house is an easy 15 minute walk to the bars and restaurants on south congress avenue. Thanks for hosting us maybe we'll see you again.

The room is very cozy and definitely enough for just one person. Maria was very hospitable and made my short stay even better with recommendations on where to eat and what I could do while in town. I enjoyed staying with her and she made sure I had everything I needed! The neighborhood was nice and I felt safe walking around. I would definitely stay here again.

I tried to skip this field as I don't like to write about myself, but it's I am Peruvian, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and moved to Houston, Texas with my family when I was four. I went to college in Austin, Texas and have since spent 3 years in Manhattan and almost 2 years back in Austin. I love to run, cycle, cook, watch movies, and travel. Some foreign places I've traveled to are Peru, Mexico, Panama, Puerto Rico, England, France, Switzerland, and Italy. I hope to get more on this list!
